I decided I wanted something that was a little salty and chewy. I soaked the onions in liquid aminos to give the onions a little saltiness. The onions dehydrated until they were the texture I wanted. These work well on pizza and salad. Here is what I did.
Makes 6 servings
1 red onion, peeled and very thinly sliced
1 tablespoon liquid aminos
Toss the onions with the liquid aminos and allow the onions to sit for an hour. Periodically toss the onions to evenly coat them with liquid aminos.
Place the onions in your dehydrator on the teflex sheets in a single layer. Dehydrate at 105 degrees until the onions are the texture you like. I dehydrated mine for about a day.

These are a little difficult to explain but I would say they remind of a cross between jerky and onions. They are chewy and salt like jerky, but still taste like raw onion only much more mild.
This may be my last post tonight. It all depends on how long my husband is in his home office on his computer.
I got a new computer earlier this week and my husband just finished setting it up for me late last night. I am still getting used to the new software. Hopefully I have run into all the computer glitches before the hubby goes back to work.
Tomorrow I will be more quiet than usual. Dan is taking the day off of work and we are going to have lunch with some friends and then run some errands after lunch. I hope to have a little time to write a post of two during the day.
